Admissions Decisions

Decision Timeline

The Admissions Committee will begin considering applications in September and notify you as soon as a decision is made.

Filing your application early does not guarantee an early decision. See the early decision admissions process.

The Committee may defer making a final decision until later in the admissions process, placing you on the Wait or Hold List.

Wait List

When you apply to Creighton School of Law, the Admissions Committee may notify you that you are on the “hold list.” This means the committee can’t yet make a decision regarding your application and is setting your application aside. The committee may then review your application later in the admissions cycle. You will be notified as soon as a decision is made.

Hold List


Hold students are students from whom we have requested additional information prior to making an admissions decision; or students who have asked us to hold review of their application while they get us additional information, such as a new LSAT score, new letter of recommendation, etc.

Additional Materials

If your application is placed on hold, you are welcome, but not required, to submit

  • Additional letters of recommendation
  • A statement of your continued interest in Creighton School of Law
  • An addendum highlighting awards, activities and/or work experience achieved since you first submitted your application

You may lawadmit [at] creighton [dot] edu (submit materials via email) or send a hard copy directly to the law school.

Visit Creighton

While your application is on hold, we invite you to visit the law school. You can meet with our admissions team, tour the campus, and meet with current students. Your visit will not, however, include an interview with the Admissions Committee.
